Summary: The PC port is a mess. With the correct unofficial patches it transforms into a fantastic action RPG's, even better than its console counterpart! It's a very difficult game, but once you get the hang of it, it's a blast. A joystick is strongly recommended to play, mouse+keyboard controls are abyssmal. Recommended to everyone that enjoy challenging action games with some mixture of RPG.
Summary: The games itself is incredibly fun and challenging, but games for windows live soured the experience by forcing me to play offline and deleting my save after i had gotten to the end of the game. This game is fine but i understand why people pirate games now because of it.
Windows 8 Technical Notes (3-star rating is a placeholder)

Summary: Quick info for those running this on a Windows 8 PC... (1) DSFix is basically mandatory. I was stunned at how terrible this looked on my monitor (1080p), but DSFix cleared it right up. Thank goodness. (2) This will install Games for Windows Live. However! The version installed through Steam is NOT the right version for Windows 8. Your game will crash on startup.
Summary: Going straight to the point: Pros=> One of the best combat systems since Demon's Souls, blocking, reposit,parrying etc etc etc :-) The one game you cannot relax in, one wrong move and you die, so prepare to die (bad pun alert) Extremely difficult Boses and mini-boses, as well as resulting reward you get for defeating them.
Summary: I'm not going to lie, this is a fun game...for someone with a game pad. I found myself searching frantically for the A button to be able to play through the first 10 minutes of the game. It's almost impossible to play this without having the game pad, so along with it, if you don't own a wired X BOX 360 remote, to order a cheap generic gamepad to use to avoid the headaches.
Conclusion: I have re-written my original review because it did not do justice to the game. I am a few hundred hours into the game and feel better placed to review than before. I have upped my score to a 3 because I still think some of the down sides outweigh the upsides. I understand this was the first port to PC for the designers so it is worth noting that. At the price you got a lot of gameplay for your money and the new game and player versus player can help to extend that.
Summary: Zunächst einmal zur doch relativ niedrigen Wertung: dieses Spiel ist keineswegs durchschnittlich sondern herausragend. Meiner Meinung nach eines der besten RPG's aller Zeiten. Allerdings will ich hier noch 3 Dinge anmerken, die die Wertung von sonst gut möglichen 5 Sternen auf 3 herabsetzten. 1. Die Pc-Portierung ist eine absolute Zumutung. Darüber wurde hier ja schon genug geschrieben. Nur so viel: Ohne Fanpatch und Xbox360 Controller unspielbar.
Summary: Das Spiel an sich ist wirklich Hammer... wenn man die Steuerung verstanden hat nach etlichen sinnlosen sterben... Ohne Mod (das man Die Tastatursteuerung sieht) ist das Spiel sehr schlecht, da man nicht weis wie man welchen Menüpunkt erreicht. Die Importierung von der Konsole macht das Spiel kaputt (Man sieht sogar die einblendungen der Steuerung von der xBox) das hätte nicht sein müssen... Aber das Spiel an sich ist sehr stimmig und macht sehr viel spaß!
Excerpt: La mia Opinione: Prima di comprarlo c'è bisogno di due "artefatti" antidelusione. 1. Una periferica di controllo (Joy pad, per questioni di compatibilità vi consiglio un joypad della xbox 360) 2. Scaricare DSfix, un software che permette di usare l'alta risoluzione,da questo sito: http://blog.metaclassofnil.com/?p=275 (il file in questione va messo nella cartella del gioco (in genere C:\NAMCO BANDAI Games\DarkSouls, consiglio di leggere il file ...
